cain, have you talked to president obama about this issue? >> i have not. >> what are the state of relations these days? >> um, i have great respect for the president. i hope and i believe that at some point we will all be meeting with the president on this issue, because we need to coordinate with the administration. but i think i haven't seen a degree of partisanship overall as there is today, but we are showing some signs of bipartisanship. this thing we just did in averting the nuclear option in the senate, this issue, i think that republicans are more inclined to let the process go forward, and senator reid is more, more inclined to let us have amendments. i see, i think that when we are down to 11% approval rating, there was a favorability thing, different things are favorable, a colonoscopy is viewed more favorably than a member of congress. [laughter] we're in kind of bad shape, to say the least. i won't pursue that line any further -- [laughter] but, you know, i've got this old line, a guy ran up to me in the airport and said, say, anybody ever tell you you look a lot like senator m

to the heart of that. the obama rejects keystone pipeline. others are furious because of the climate change issues. i'm assuming you would conclude that exxon is also is a furious as it was back then. >> guest: oh, yeah. they don't quite know what to do about the politics of the keystone pipeline. in their book it is so irrational that they -- they almost can't overcome their own sort of indignity about how disconnected politics of the pipeline is from the underlying questions of climate change regulations, that their roll in that and the global oil market. thesteen pipeline is a continuation of the things that made them mad earlier. >> host: absolutely. the same thing. >> guest: trying to attack the problem -- look, even the environmentalists would admit, i'm sure, that if they could enact universal price on carbon as the basis for addressing climate change and the danger office global warming, they would. failed to do that and couldn't get a bill in congress. so they're trying to look for opportunities to call attention to the problem and keep challenging the status quo. so they have chos

-judge panel of the united states court of appeals for the district of columbia issued a decision that basically said the era of recess appointments is over. the three-judge court unanimously ruled that president obama on january 4, treft, made -- on january 4, 2012, made four recess appointments which were unconstitutional. and, therefore, said the court, these four individuals -- one has already gone from the nlrb. so two nlrb individuals were in the case that was before this court. hold their seats unconstitutionally. the chairman of the national labor relations board, nevertheless said in effect the nlrb is open for business. i respectfully suggest a different sign should go up. "help wanted. nominations needed." and that the two nlrb members whose recess appointments were unconstitutional should leave the court, because the decisions -- leave the nlrb, because the decisions in which they participated -- and there were 219 of them -- cannot be valid if they're challenged, just as this one decision was vacated, cannot be challenged because since they stwrurpbltly there -- they

personally that we resolve this issue. i will do everything in my power to get a bill across the finish line. nothing short of bipartisan success is acceptable to me. president obama has already taken commendable executive action to stem deportation of upstanding young men and women brought to this country by their parents. i commend him for making immigration reform a top priority. president obama will place to the nation his own ideas during a visit to las vegas tomorrow. with bipartisan support billing in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this issue, there is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately. it will be good for our economy and good for families. successful immigration reform cannot be piecemeal and it must include a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals in our country. legislation must craft a comprehensive solution that among other things continues to secure our borders, punishes unscrupulous employers who deploy immigrants. they have to learn english, work, pay taxes, stay out of trouble and then
